Global Futurist Jack Uldrich believes that anyone can 'think like a futurist' and that taking time to consider the possibilities the future may hold is becoming increasingly important in today's fast-changing world.
MINNEAPOLIS, December 17, 2018 (Newswire.com) - As a professional futurist, Jack Uldrich spends much of his time developing and curating a wide variety of resources and insights to help his clients navigate an uncertain future. His goal is to "help democratize the skills of a futurist" which he does by guiding leaders to create the habits and take the actions needed to better “future-proof” their organizations.
In support of that goal, Uldrich recently shared the books that he found most insightful to his work this year in his article "A Futurist's Top Books for 2018." He believes that reading these books can help anyone broaden their perspective and think about the future differently.
The world is accelerating and it's imperative that business leaders spend more time scanning the horizon and looking around the next corner. If they do, they will come to appreciate that the time to begin preparing for a radically different future is now!

Specific actions that Uldrich shares in his many presentations include finding a “reverse-mentor” to gain a different generational perspective, conducting a business “pre-mortem” to address potential challenges before they happen, and taking a “think week” to focus on the future. These actions can be beneficial regardless of what trends and technologies emerge.
According to Uldrich, "The world is accelerating and it's imperative that business leaders spend more time scanning the horizon and looking around the next corner. If they do, they will come to appreciate that the time to begin preparing for a radically different future is now!"
He adds, "You can either be humble about the future, or be humbled by the future."
As a futurist, Uldrich doesn't claim to predict the future, but his goal is to help people recognize how fast the world is changing and provide them with tools and resources they need to survive and thrive in the future. To start considering the possibilities the next year may bring, he recently shared his top trends and top game changers that we might expect in 2019 in his articles Jack Uldrich "Predictions" for 2019 and Jack Uldrich's Game-Changing Technologies.
